Will Gravity Tug Nasdaq Back To Earth?

Will Gravity Tug Nasdaq Back To Earth?

Both the Nasdaq Composite and the Nasdaq 100 are probing new high territory, while the major indices look tired. Institutional funds have been flowing out of U.S. equities since the first of the year, which accounts for the choppy and lackluster performance of the major indices (the S&P is up 3.6%). That said, most institutions don’t invest in small caps or the Nasdaq 100, which is...

$DKS: Dick's Sproting Goods Short Strangle Swap

$DKS: Dick's Sproting Goods Short Strangle Swap

A short strangle swap is something that works great in the theoretical world, but has a lot of obstacles associated with them.  First, what is a short strangle swap?  Think of it as selling a put calendar and a call calendar at the same time.  A long gamma, short vega set up.  For this to work, we need to have implied volatility come in precipitously and almost more importantly, we need to...

Lindsay Forecast for the End of the Bull Market Part II

Lindsay Forecast for the End of the Bull Market Part II

Similar to forecasting highs, the first step in forecasting a low is in applying Lindsay’s 12y interval. The 12y interval stretches 12y, 2m–12y, 8m from an important high. The next 12y interval is counted from the high in 2004 and points to a low in Apr-Oct 2016. A decline which begins in the first half of this year will have time to fit Lindsay’s rule of thumb which calls for 1yr down...

Alcoa (AA) – A Leading Industrial Play on the Growing Global Aerospace and Automotive Sectors

AA, the largest aluminum producer in the U.S., returned nearly 50% in 2014, as the combination of rising aluminum prices (along with rising regional price premiums over London Metal Exchange prices), efficiency gains, and a 7% growth in global aluminum demand drove AA’s 2014 net income to $268 million, its highest calendar-year profit since 2011. For the U.S. aluminum industry as a...

Why You Don't Have a Trading Log and Why You Should!

Why You Don't Have a Trading Log and Why You Should!

Every educator worth their salt will tell you “It’s important to log your trades”, to keep a record of your trades in order to track your progress. Almost all traders fail to heed this advice. In fact, of the traders I work with, I’d say that less than 5% actually keep a consistent trade history. It’s not just laziness at play here; there are practical reasons and psychological reasons that...

Lindsay: Forecasting: The End of the Bull Market

Lindsay: Forecasting: The End of the Bull Market

The first step in forecasting an important high is accomplished using Lindsay’s 15yr interval. It isolates an eleven month period in which the high is found. Lindsay wrote that the interval (15yr-15yr, 11m) can be counted from any “important” low leaving the identification of the low somewhat ambiguous. In my own attempt to derive a more structured approach to identifying “important” lows I...

For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.

To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.

By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.

Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
